The Administrators of 1001 BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU DIE welcome you to the group. We encourage you to explore the group, check out the various opportunities. There is a general explanation of the group and some answers to FAQ under the discussion thread GROUP GUIDELINES. The past BOTM can be found in the FAQ section for 2011, 2010 and 2009 if you want to search discussions you can join in anytime.
Our July 2012 BOTMs are
1. Dracula by Bram Stoker
2. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Murial Spark
3. Cannery Row by John Steinbeck
The discussion threads are pinned to the top. Please join one or all of these group reads. Also check out the opportunities to participate in 2012 challenges. We are reading War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy as a seasonal read for July, August September.
You also can stop by the thread for voting for August’s books and cast your vote. We choose from the top three books after a week of voting and that is how we get our BOTM.
Hi! I would recommend The Secret Life of the Underwear Champ. Oh! Have you read Frindle with your son yet? I taught the book to my class and they LOVED it (and I think I enjoyed it as much as they did!)
I would also recommend going to http://www.icdlbooks.org/ to look at an amazing list of books-- almost all of which are available to read on the website as well.
